Handmade Monday

I'd hoped to do Handmade Monday last week but Sky broadband was down all day and evening, so I didn't get time. I managed to pick up some work on Tuesday and spent the day with a delightful class in the Quantocks. Then the rest of the week was spent making stock for the fair on Saturday. Unfortunately not at all busy - too many village fairs going on around us I think.

Back to Handmade Monday - I promised Pickle-Lily last week that the next one would feature all the things she'd been making, and to be honest I'm feeling rather proud of her with all her crafting.

She is especially proud of the apron made on her sewing machine all by herself. it was put into use on Saturday as a money apron. Brilliant - playing shops in real life!

Now I must get back to finishing a commission for a friend, I hope to post it on here later this week.

Shame your fair wasn't busy, as you say, lots of fairs the same week in a small area.
Your daughter done really well, I love the cupcake design and I'm glad she got to try out the money apron for real. Well done.
